Subject: Terrapin was an anthem to the LSD gods..
Marked by THREE Dylan tunes.. (Bob forgot words to "Maggie's Farm" and Jerry was spotlighted in to save the day.. Bob then motioned that he was back and the spotlight returned to him to try again but again ? He forgot and Jerry again gets spotlighted to save the song and he yet again shines for the crowd ... Bob finally returns from insanity and finished. A Grateful Dead moment !) I remember being very high when Mickey and Billy went into "Space" and Mickey playing that very weird thing at that very end with like laser lights.. That strange sound at the end.. But it was "Terrapin Station" that blew everyone away. Jerry was very emotional .... Listen to this version? The best ever and I was there ! "The Mighty Quinn" had everyone singing along at the end. One of the best shows by anyone I've ever seen ..
Subject: First show
Subject: LOVE LIGHT!!!!
Subject: Those Mighty Kings
First set > Shakedown is fun but to it usualy is. I not a fan of Rooster or Althea but both deliver.A couple of fumbles in Althea doesn't stop it from being good. Masterpiece and Deal are tops but again are usually good to my ears.
Monster second starts off with Maggies>Cumberland>Playin>Terrapin which is as good as it gets. Out of Space Miracle>Stella Blue>T Stones>Lovelight great stuff! Quinn ends its very nicely.
Subject: My favorite show of all time;
Anyways, thanks for putting this decent recording up.
Subject: Locomotive powered Limited by the well-produced qualities...
2nd Set: Now, "Cumberland" is what the boys do well... a bluegrass oriented skiffle. They stick with the formula which makes "Maggie's" a good time. Oopsy, bobby... he's forgetting the whole of his second lyric. Plenty of good energy and fills the halls during an aimless "Playin." "Terrapin" is a monster, and one of the finest of '87. How triumphant is 8:00-9:38? Obviously we're headed straight for "Drums" Mickey wastes little time in getting to his toys. YES!! "Space" makes me kooky crazy. I think Bobby's drunk/coked up during this "Miracle." "Stella" features an extended intro to morph and sullen the crowd up. Hello there, Mr. Despondent and removed...I need food to pick up my spirits and energy during a cheesily sung "Throwing." Undeniable '77 like force. Strong anchor. Of course the middle night has to be "Lovelite" (not "NFA" like it was in Oakland or whereever) Well, in all fairness they reach a smooth rarified glide during the 1:40's/1:50s. Jerry's amusing himself throughout. Very nice frenzy moments at the very late 4's, and we get the false ending...:o) Wow!
And why wouldn't they want to continue this party? Everybody..."Come on within...You've not seen Nothing Like Mighty Quinn"
Thank you. 3 1/2 stars
